You could have a master file that sources the rest:


or you could save the function in a workspace and just load it back in;
however, at some point I would move that all to a package.  I typically
will create a package for myself even if I have no intention of distributing
it since it nicely puts together all the source and documentation and the
checking tools are helpful to improve the QA.

Its a bit of work to figure it all out the first time but once you
are over that hump its worth it.
